Nicole White-Samuels is an effective therapist and counselor. She actively listens and picks up on cues before she responds or inquires. She has helped me with couples counseling, career counseling, anxiety, and other issues I included in our sessions. Nicole provided me with worksheets that have helped me assess, identify, and address my challenges. I have had no issues with accessing her and many times she started our sessions earlier if I was online. Now that we've completed our sessions, I feel that I have grown and have the tools I need to be successful and live an enriching life.

Ms. Nicole is awesome, she's someone that will listen to you and ask you questions that you should be asking yourself. She gave me so much to consider in situations when I would normal get carried away with my own thoughts. I highly recommend her!!!

Nicole is WONDERFUL. In only a couple sessions with her (so far) I am already starting to feel like I have a better grasp on my situation. Nicole is attentive, thoughtful in her wording and counseling, and has already helped me to find hope and grace for my situation.

Nicole is a phenomenal counselor that knows how to calm my anxiety and intensity. She recenters me to promote self care, personal growth, and asks the critical questions that guide me through my emotional and psychological work while holding me accountable to the commitments and decisions I’ve made.
